Does the consumer always lose?

My friends and I shopped at Toys R Us and Babies R Us for years. These were the primary stores for kids from birth through elementary school and beyond.

 

A class action suit has just been authorized against Babies R Us for price fixing. The complaint states that they coerced manufacturers to fix prices so they would not be undersold by other web sites selling the same products. Babies R Us is accused with threatening to cut off product purchases from manufacturers who did not comply.

 

Babies R Us has the clout to do this since they can account for 30% or more of a manufacturer’s product sales.

 

Wherever you turn some retailer is trying to rip you off these days.Three dollar cups of coffee, four dollars for a bottle of water, six dollar hot dogs at some baseball stadiums and now price fixing on baby products. :-(
